Episode 3 How I've Handled The Most Difficult Times In My Life: Love & Loss
July 19, 2013
Hi Emily this is Leena. Wow, I really loved your video, it is truly inspirational! I loved the Marilyn Monroe quote and I can really relate to it - I've felt the same way many times; that in order to become somebody I have to become somebody other than who I am and I think this really is an internal struggle for many women. I will definitely watch her documentary!
I also liked what you said about living in the new nature. I do believe that the new nature is a blessing and we must live in it not in the old nature, and I think your video of Katy Perry was an excellent choice. I admire her for that music video, and it portrays the way I felt when I broke up with a long-term partner three years ago. That's just the way I felt, but as you said we should live in the new nature, and we should be strong. I also agree with what you said about saying goodbye to a part of you when a relationship ends - this is very true but yes, love does come back and I believe that's why we should live in the new nature so as not to let it pass us by. I really, really loved the last part of the video and I feel exactly the same way.
I also loved what you said about beauty. Unfortunately most of the time girls feel they should compete with one another but I do agree with you that this shouldn't happen. I grew up with 2 older sisters but I still never felt the need to compete with them. I totally agree that beauty should be an expression, and we shouldn't give too much attention on how society expects us to be, but just be ourselves and not be afraid to show who we are.
I also think it's great that you create your own clothes! And speaking of that, I just loved the dress you are wearing in your video! I love your look, and your hair is gorgeous :)
Please keep posting more videos, I really really enjoyed this one and I feel women should be inspired by everything you said and should not give up on love or anything in their lives.
Thank you so much Emily, I look forward to watching more of your videos.
